The media has been constantly in the news for a year as if there was a relative relationship between INS Viraat and the controversy.
Despite the beginning of the great collapse of the Alang shipbreaking yard, the British Trust has written to the Prime Minister of India and The United Kingdom to intervene to take the warship to the Museum in Britain.
The Hermes Virat Heritage Trust has written to the Prime Ministers of India and Britain demanding that they take the historic warship INS Virat back to The United Kingdom and transfer it to the Maritime Museum.
If the prime minister of both countries gets the consent, the Trust will form a world-class Maritime Museum in front of Liverpool City Centre.
The British Trust was trying to transfer Virat to the Museum in Goa, along with the Envitech Marine from Mumbai. 4th December is celebrated as Navy Day in India, the same day the Ministry of Defense expressed the inability to issue a no-objection certificate on Virat.

Preparations are underway to knock on the doors of the Supreme Court for turning Virat into a museum by the Envitech Marine in Mumbai after the Defense Ministry closed the gates on Virat.
On the other hand, according to Shri Ram Group CMD, Mukesh Patel, Virat has already begun to break. As of Monday evening, 5% of the cuts have been made. Our routine process has already begun to break down the ship.
Virat: Late, everyone’s wisdom broke: The process of sending India’s historic warship INS Virat to the demolish had begun in December 2019.
Why did the Navy, including the Hermis Virat Heritage Trust, of The Navy, come to the ground only after the ship arrived to break into the Alang shipbreaking yard? If the ship was built before Independence, how safe would it be to transfer it to a museum? All these things are creating many doubts.
